PART 1: Introduction

The Situational Awareness Management System (SAMS) provides necessary means for the integration, management and control of all components of the surveillance system. Using Service Oriented Architecture, SAMS consists of modules that are integrated with each other, each one will manage, control and collect data from one or more sensors of the same type from many different locations to synthesize into a panorama of the main interested area in real time.

Because of the open design, SAMS is able to easily add and remove modules without affecting operation of the system, also makes it easier for expanding the future system. SAMS allows to share images to a lot of users at the same time, who can be in many different locations. This function helps all captains involve in decision-making to have unified decisions about real situations.

Situational Awareness Management System and sensor management

The Situational Awareness Management System (SAMS) provides a situational picture by integrating data from multiple sensors at locations and is displayed in Command & Control – C2) in order to provide images and information in real-time to commanders at all levels. The main functions of SAMS are:

  • Integrate sensor management and control
  • Handle the tracking radar
  • Compare and synthesize sensor data
  • Record data and replay
  • Give right access and partition users
  • Present the data
  • Configure thesystem
  • Monitor the system condition

SAMS Architecture

SAMS Architecture

The SAMS architecture consists of the following main devices and components:

  • The radar system is intended to provide data exclusively for server of the system, and is built, operated and managed via the Automatic Radar Tracking System (ARTS). The radars are designed with high-resolution digital pulse counting technology, multi-frequency Doppler processing and is equipped with antennas which are ready to serve long range, mid-range and short-range coverage. Depending on the number of targets to track, select the appropriate type of radar.
  • ARTS provides radar data for the sensor management center to synthesize and compare to other sensor signals.
  • The sensor management system provides aggregated and compared data to the server C2DB to display at the secondary C2DB (display of the operator).
  • Other functional sensors, such as the Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar to detect swimmers, clones; Automatic Identification System (AIS), Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT), waveguide machine and barriers of detecting abnormalcy of magnetic field, provide monitoring data for sensor management center to synthesize and compare with other sensors.
  • Videos and data from thermal cameras and daytime cameras are sent to Camera Information System (CIS) via Secret Internet Protocol Router (SIPRnet), and are controlled through CIS.
  • Camera’s data and videos are provided for Network Data Recorder in order for storage and to C2DB and C2VW for display.
  • Camera can be operated by local or remote operator, or automatic control.
